Hi, and welcome back to our ongoing catalogue of Bomberman keshi. If you haven’t already, please start at the first post, then check out the list of articles we have on the subject. I’m steadily trying to cover them all, but it’s going to take a while!

In this brief article, I’ll be focusing on the three Saturn Bomberman keshi. Now, for a long time, I’d been under the impression that all 5 Teacher Bombers and Bomberman (in his Bomber Monk guise) existed, but due to Ragey’s research on the menko that came bundled with these figures, I’m inclined to agree with him that these three were all we got. In fact, they were released in the same set as the Virtual Boy figures from my very first keshi article! It appears that all the Bomberman games that were released or yet-to-be-released at that time were represented in this unlikely set, which explains why God Bomber got a figure even though his game, Virtual Bomberman, ended up getting cancelled.

Because I kind of messed up, instead of revising that old article yet again, I decided to examine these guys in a fresh new article.

The weirdest part of this whole thing is that I have a very vivid memory of seeing a Bomber Miyagi figure up on eBay several years ago, back when I could only justify collecting the Super Bomberman 2 and 3 keshi. If he doesn’t exist, then I have no idea what I saw. Just more proof that you can’t rely on memories alone!

Saturn Bomberman  Keshi Info

  • Year: Circa 1995
  • Number of figures: 10
  • Figure size: Normal (up to 5cmx5cm)
  • Known colours: Yellow, red, white, dark blue, pink

Bomberman


This is Bomberman in his Bomber-Monk-esque outfit that he wears during Master Mode in Saturn Bomberman. Because all three figures are based on Master Mode alone, it makes sense to include this version of him. Also, most keshi sets include White Bomberman, so that’s probably why we have him instead of one of the other Teachers.

You could make a whole dojo with these guys.

There’s not a lot to say about him. The detail on his outfit is great, as always, and he carries the benefit of being a canon version of Bomberman as opposed to the sports- or fantasy-themed figures. All three of these Saturn figures are relatively easy to come by, so he’s a welcome addition to your collection.

Bomber Bomjin


A Bomberman made of bombs… classic.

Let’s just hope none of them has a short fuse.

Bomjin, like other big guys, is scaled down to the height of the other figures, keeping all of his proportions accurate. The flat fuse sparks are a cute touch. Some figures’ sparks have ended up a bit bent, but it generally doesn’t affect the look of the figure too much.

Bomber Dragon


Dragon is my personal favourite out of these three, but unfortunately, since his tail is detachable, you’re not very likely to find a complete figure of him. It’s sad, too, because while the tail doesn’t sit against the floor, it does help keep him from toppling backward. On the bright side, since it’s such a small part of him, its omission can be easily masked if you have him standing up on a shelf amidst other figures.

Yeah, occasionally, you might even find one with his horns snapped off. Kids!

Bomber Dragon is in a similar (if reversed) pose to the one he holds in his artwork, sans fireball.

That’s all I have for this article! For the rest of the figures in this set, please check the original article. My next update should be the final article in the classic Bomberman keshi series, so stay tuned!

If you like Bomberman, well, so do I! Obviously! Please take a look at my other articles on the subject. Thanks for reading!

Special thanks to Ragey and another close friend of mine for gifting me most of the figures shown. <3
